    ZJ Rough Country Long Arm Install

    Ok, well still waiting on some parts but here is a small update:

    Stock DD form:




    Heres what I sold to fund this small project:




    Double Din Nav/DVD install (Bezel is not finished)







    Alpine components with 2 - 10" Memphis subs on an Alpine MRX-V60 Amp, this amp puts out 50w rms to 4 channels at 4 ohm, then 300w rms on a "sub" channel at 2 ohms




    And here is my tire of choice, 285/70-17 Treadwright Guard Dog M/T's, I lucked out and they came on a BFG MTR casing with the kevlar reinforced sidewalls

    This is all of my build pics for now. I have gotten exhaust issues fixed, only other issue is skid plate not fitting, which is being worked on. Got alignment and new drag link/tie rod. Rides way better than did stock.

    Future plans:
    d44 or 8.8 rear
    d30 hp front
    4.56's
    RCV shafts up front
    231 t case (or 231OR)
    Swap 1" spacers for 2" ones
    Fully coat interior with Lizard Skin
    Take and have underneath side undercoated
    Rock sliders
    BUmpers
    Install XRC8

    the bracket in question is from a set of nerf bars, they bolted in the elongated hole and could slide back and forth to adjust the fit.

    I got a set of custom built Dana 44's setup for a ZJ, chromemolly axle shafts super joints, 4.56 gears electrac front locker spooled in the rear.
    disc brakes all the way around, cross over steering and setup for hydro assist and or drag link. would bolt right in , let me know if interested.

    Looks great.

    Get some hooks on the front, fire extinguisher, and come out and wheel. There is a run in mid-November to Tuttle and Wheelin' for Toys @ KanRocks (12/10).

    It wont be wheeled until a few issues are fixed
    1- Needs rear DS extended 2.5" and rear contol arms adjusted to lengthen wheel base 1.5"
    2- Needs lockers (or d35 is removed, i dont want to break it)
    3- I need to build a lil money back up in my savings after buying all these parts in case of breaking while wheeling
